    EdgeStar Extreme Cool 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner

    Simply put, based on our independent testing and customer feedback, the EdgeStar Extreme Cool line of portable air conditioners offer the perfect combination of cooling power, quality and style- a combination unmatched by any other unit on the market. We recommend this stylish silver portable air conditioner as the best choice for cooling rooms from up to 425 sq. ft. The EdgeStar AP12000S Portable Air Conditioner combines superior engineering, colder airflow, and a more energy efficient design to be our top cooling choice.

    Another great feature of this portable air conditioner is that it is an environmental friendly unit - It meets new RoHS standards. RoHS, also known as the lead-free directive, stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. The goal of RoHS is to restrict the amount of certain toxins in electronic and electrical equipment such as lead, mercury, and cadmium. This restriction lessens the harmful impact these toxins can have on the environment and allows for the safer disposal and recycling of electronics and electrical equipment.

    Key Features Include:
    • Coldest AirFlow of any Unit Tested- Extreme Cool design uses a more efficient compressor than the competition & delivers higher airflow volume. This helps to bring down the temperature of your room faster than other units.
    • Self-Evaporative System- This AP12000S offers a new patented Z-Spray auto drain exhaust system that essentially eliminates the need to empty any water from the unit. It also offers a direct drain option that allows you to run the unit 365 days a year without having to empty any water accumulation.
    • Cool Boost Technology - Provides a cooling boost that allows the unit to operate more efficiently and lower your energy cost.
    • Quiet Operation - Lower operating noise levels than competing units.
    • Superior Reliability: Through quality construction and  more durable internal components, the AP12000S is designed to last longer and work in more rigorous environments than other brands.

    EdgeStar Extreme Cool 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner 4 5 5 5
    This one gets a 12K rating I now own 3 of these units, one I bought last year and the other two this year. I might just get a fourth one. They work great and don't take up an entire window like window units.. They are on wheels so you can move them out of the way ifyou need to. My 18K window unit is a bear to move around, lug up the stairs from winter storage and put in. Thiese units simply roll out of the way when winter comes. Yes, they must be vented to the outside and yes, once and a while you need to empty the water, but no big deal. June 8, 2011
    Open Box Review I recently moved from an apartment with central air to one with just a wall unit. Living next to the foothills of the Calif. desert I needed something for my bedroom. I found this unit online with a high rating. Having used it for the past month I can say that everything that has been said as to this units capacities is true. I find myself having to turn the unit off at night because it gets too cold and when I get home and turn it on it cools the room down in minutes. Buying from this company was a great experience as well. Shipped fast and no charge too. I got such a good deal that when it is time to do the other bedroom I will look no further than Living Direct for my purchase. November 1, 2010
    Great Item - one caveat The unit was exceptional - it cooled a 15x20 room very effectively. It was easy to set up and operate. My issue was the fact that my building was gas heated (including water heaters) and this unit was able to create enough of a negative pressure that my chimneys back-drafted. In short - it's a great unit, cools very well, just make sure you evaluate your environment first - I had to switch to a AP14000W which had a ducted input to prevent the negative pressure.

    Average Unit I purchased this unit in January 2008. The room I use it in is about 275 sq. ft. It does a good job cooling and heating the area. The heater only lasted the first season. October 30, 2010
